Notice of Field Work - February 28 - March 4

Geotechnical Fieldwork: Miracle Mile to Koreatown

Metro contractors have been conducting a series of geotechnical fieldwork tests as a part of the Final Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (Final EIS/EIR) for the Westside Subway Extension.  This work builds upon the data gathered during the Draft EIS/EIR for the project and provides further soil and seismic information along the route of the Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA).  Following the tests, the data will be analyzed and used to make further informed decisions about subway construction.

The tests will include various types of drilling to collect soil samples, tests to measure how noise and vibration travel through the soil, tests to gather information about underground seismic features, and scans for oil wells and other underground utilities.  You may have seen work crews conducting similar tests on city streets.  Different types of equipment will be utilized depending on the kind of tests to be performed.  In many cases the work will occur during the day but some work will need to be conducted overnight or on weekends.

Between Monday, February 28 and Friday, March 4, from 9AM to 3PM Metro contractors will conduct work to locate and identify underground utilities along the following locations:

  • Wilshire Blvd between La Jolla Ave and Hauser Blvd
  • Wilshire Blvd between Rossmore Ave and Western Ave

Note:  Should any work need to be cancelled and rescheduled, Metro will inform you of new work date(s)/time(s).
